“Responder al censo ayuda a las comunidades a obtener los fondos que necesitan y ayuda a las empresas a tomar decisiones basadas en datos que hacen crecer a la economía. Los datos del censo influyen en nuestra vida diaria, aportando información para tomar decisiones importantes sobre el financiamiento de servicios e infraestructura en su comunidad, incluyendo atención médica, centros para personas de la tercera edad, empleos, representación política, carreteras, escuelas y negocios. Más de $675 mil millones de fondos federales se distribuyen a los estados y a las comunidades locales basándose en los datos del censo.

Por ley, sus respuestas al censo no pueden ser usadas en su contra de ninguna manera por ninguna agencia del gobierno ni tribunal—ni por el Buró Federal de Investigaciones (FBI), ni por la Agencia Central de Inteligencia (CIA), ni por el Departamento de Seguridad Nacional (DHS), ni por el Servicio de Inmigración y Control de Aduanas de los EE. UU. (ICE). La ley exige a la Oficina del Censo mantener confidencial su información y usar sus respuestas solo para producir estadísticas. El Título 13 deja muy claro que la información que recopilemos se puede usar solo para propósitos estadísticos—no podemos permitir que se use para nada más, incluyendo el cumplimiento de la ley. Usted tendrá la opción de responder por internet, por correo o por teléfono. Un censista visitará los hogares que no respondan de una de estas maneras para recopilar la información en persona. La ley protege su información personal, sin importar cómo responda.”
